    switchable impedance?

    There was a Matamp 2x12 cab in the marketplace on here a couple of years ago that had a switchable impedance, but off the top of my head I can't remember what the options were. It's here: 4 and 16ohms, so presumably 2 8ohm speakers, with the switch allowing you to go between series and parallel. I was sorely tempted by it.

    Why does Ashdown MAG 300 combo sound so bloody good?

    Two of my biggest gear-related regrets both involve Ashdown. There was an Ashdown ABM 500 1x15 combo just 15 minutes away from me for £125 that I dithered on for too long, and the other was an Ashdown MAG 414 (4 ohm 4x10) cab for £100. Annoyingly, I had the cash for both. I need to stop sleeping on the stuff that's mega-cheap and just buy it, because for those prices I could have easily got my money back if I didn't like them.
  3. Hi Jono, I'm actually selling a Squire CV 60's P Bass in Sonic Blue - send me a PM if you're interested :)

    If You Had £3000 For a Bass ....

    If I had £3000 to spend on a bass, I probably wouldn't spend £3000 on a bass. I would spend maybe £1K, tops, but my tastes are simple and I only really like P Basses. In fact, I only really like the one I've already got. I'd probably just get it a decent set-up and spend the rest on something else. I may be tempted to splash out and buy the Fender 50s Precision in pink or the Squier Classic Vibe Precision in Sonic Blue that are for sale near me, but I'm not an overly GASsy person.

    Trying to ID Epiphone Guitar

    As said, it's an ET-280. I always liked these, I think they look pretty cool.

    15 year old son looking for help with used bass amps

    That Peavey was my first gigging amp when I was 18 or so. From memory it's about 130W, and would be more than capable for what he's after. Try and haggle the price down to £90 and use the extra tenner for a sack trolley to shift it about, because it weighs a fecking ton.

    NSD Fender Flatwounds (vs D’Addario chromes)

    I've got the Fender flats on my P Bass; they're 55-105, but they feel a lot heavier than the 105 rounds I usually use. I've had them on for 9 months now, and they still sound bright, but have smoothed out a bit.
  8. Any chance anyone's going to be driving from the Midlands to the Glasgow area with room for a cab?

  9. I thought "Noname" was the manufacturer

    NBD - G&L Tribute Kiloton (DV247 B-Stock)

    I'd never heard of this bass before but it looks awfy smart
  11. I've never really been a Limelight fan but that's absolutely incredible

    Ampeg or another Ashdown?

    If it can't be fixed, I'd recommend the Aguilar Tonehammer for sale in the Marketplace if you want a wee amp. Otherwise, stick with Ashdown.

    Peavey TNT 130 vs Ashdown electric Blue 180

    I misread the title and was wondering why so many people were going for the Peavey. Re-read it and realised it was the Ashdown Electric Blue; horrible, shitey wee amps. Any Peavey would easily be better, but out of interest, which TNT combo is it? Peavey produced TNTs for over 20 years, going through several design changes. If it's one of the older ones with silver stripes, definitely get it. Whichever it is though, it'll weigh an absolute ton.

    Ampeg. Are they the Marmite of amps?

    I've honestly never heard anyone say a word against Ampeg. Are you sure you're not thinking about Ashdown? They've long been a proper "love-it-or-hate-it" amp.

    Show us your rig!

    New head, now with a new volume and distortion pot. I love the slightly squat look of it. I still have the Mark IV but I need to list that for sale at some point.
